A unique trombonist using a sly wit and the capability to sound as though he were performing underwater, Vic Dickenson was a secured asset to any program which he appeared. He mentioned out in the 1920s and ’30s playing within the Midwest. Organizations with Blanche Calloway (1933-1936), Claude Hopkins (1936-1939), Benny Carter (1939), Count number Basie (1940), Carter once again (1941), and Frankie Newton (1941-1943) preceded a high-profile gig with Eddie Heywood’s well-known sextet (1943-1946); Dickenson also performed and documented with Sidney Bechet. After that he was a freelancing soloist who spent period on the Western world Coastline, Boston, and NY, showing up on many recordings (including some significant schedules for Vanguard) and on the legendary Audio of Jazz telecast (1957). In the 1960s, Dickenson co-led the Saints and Sinners, toured with George Wein’s Newport All-Stars, and proved helpful regularly with Crazy Costs Davison and Eddie Condon. During 1968-1970, he was within a quintet with Bobby Hackett and in the 1970s, he occasionally used the World’s Greatest Jazz Music group.
